    it is closer to my house and the only one in the area to ofter this particular program, its also has a lot of other great programs, to keep options open

    Course Curriculum :

    the schedule is way too overcharged, 3/4 of the class drops out before graduation, teachers are great but it is a very hard program

    I opted for this particular college because all of my friends went there, the program I wanted to get in was there and the requirements in the notes part weren't too high so I knew I'd get in this particular school.

    Course Curriculum :

    It's okay even tho it could be better. They all could be better. Like, no one wants to have 3 history courses or a politics course. I'd have preferred it if there were a human sciences psychology program and another one for social interventions.

    The college is close to my house, so I can get there quicker and avoid being late. It also has a very good reputation, especially in science programs. It also has a lot of activities and many student services!

    Course Curriculum :

    The course curriculum is very interesting and complete, it includes all the subjects taught in class and covers all the evaluations, as well as useful information, like helpful resources and the teacher's experiences.

    It was pretty close to my home, it wasn't too expensive, and I heard from past students of the college that the teachers were good. Also, for the program I chose, this school was just as adequate as any other.

    Course Curriculum :

    There are a lot of courses, some of which might even be necessary to pursue a career in business administration, and there are some things.

    At first I wasn't supposed to go to this college but I didn't really have the choice because I didn't get accepted to the college I wanted to go at first. And because of that I had to skip a semester.

    Course Curriculum :

    I think it's really good, because the program in general is going to make us learn new things to help us with our future work. In the course program, there's every course that we have to go through to get a diploma.
